Fruit and Vegetable Workshop
These are the demos that I did for the workshop today that I held in my studio. The pineapple was an 11 x 14 and the peppers were even bigger. I started out with teaching how to set up stills with fruits and vegetables. I had each of them bring their cameras so that they could shoot subject matter to paint later. Then I showed them how to download them on to their computers. I explained to them how to crop, and edit their photos. Those who know me know that this is really funny. I swore that I would never be on a computer and here I am teaching others how to use theirs. Too funny.
We had a great time in class and they did some good pieces. I told them now they have to redo them to see how loose they can get. I am even going to redo mine to see how loose I can get. Oh, by the way...lunch was delicious but that up-side down German chocolate cake was out of this world. Who said we are starving artists.
